A Journey to Buenos Aires
Richard Noyce

29.11.13 07.12.13

“From November 29 to December 7 2013, I was invited by the British Council and Fundación´ace to visit Argentina. This very welcome invitation enabled me to attend the opening of the Further and Critical Mass exhibitions, two visual projects that emerged from a collaborative work between the artists who have been reviewed in his books. In addition, I gave the lecture ‘Traces and Footprints’ – within a panel in which Argentine artists Mirta Kupferminc and Alicia Candiani also participated – and gave a master class about “Artists writing about art”, visited workshops and reviewed portfolios for Argentine artists. The multiple net-working activities enabled me to meet Argentine artists and critics in an intensive and stimulating week. Previously, I had already participated in a videoconference with Argentinean artists in ´ace on September 20 as the opening of the [Ciclos] project.”


Richard Noyce writes on contemporary art and exposes his ideas and thoughts by lecturing and participating in international symposia.

He has written three fundamental books for contemporary printmaking as well as expanded field work done through print media: Printmaking off the Beaten Track – a study of printmaking and print art in some lesser known countries, including those that have been or are still being, subject to conflict, Critical Mass – Printmaking Beyond the Edge and Printmaking in the Edge, the latter having been reissued a second time due to its success.

He was awarded the 1996 AAASS / Orbis Polish Book Prize.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
